Cody Gardner, DPT

Physical Therapist

Cody Gardner, DPTI struck out from my hometown of Thornton, Colorado, after graduating from Mountain Range High School and earned my Bachelor of Science in Movement Science from Texas Christian University in 2015 with a minor in Child Development. I went on to earn my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Washington University in St Louis School of Medicine in 2018. Following graduation, I traveled around the US and Canada for a year and a half with the National Tour of Disney’s The Lion King as the company health provider, treating cast, crew, management, and orchestra. Physical activity has been a motif from a very young age, having participated in activities such as soccer, running, swimming, skateboarding, cycling, and rock climbing. At my core, I am a performer and participate regularly in acting, vocal, and instrumental music, dance, and writing. I bring a heavy movement system-oriented orthopedic approach to Colorado Orthopedic Rehab as well as manual therapy and dry needling—I particularly enjoy treating performers, kids, and young athletes. Travel, novel pursuits, and artistic expression are my tenets to a fulfilled life. I thrive on getting to know my patients, prioritizing their passions, and empowering them to feel in control of their health and well-being.
